I would like to start a series of random posts about life in Tokyo from a Parisian perspective. I’ll try to show the good, the bad and the in-between. I make no promises in terms of frequency or objectivity.

Fair enough, I may not have had the patience to find the right parameters yet.

Super résumé. J’avais pris l’habitude de sortir cette vidéo de PNN sur les courbatures à mes comparses sportifs conservateurs : www.youtube.com/watch?v=O0es_qU7eh0.

If it’s short hair trimming, you can do it by yourself at home. You only need a trimmer that should be the price of two visits and two mirrors. Watch some video tutorial like this one and regain your freedom. www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSZCH2mlz_M

It’s impossible to cut your skin with modern electric trimmers, unless you have skin as loose as foreskin on your head.

I think this is already a pretty widespread practice in Asia, mixed with the idols culture, where people pretend to be in a relationship with their idol.

am pretty sure Idol Culture isn’t about pretending to be in a relationship with your idol

You’re correct, it’s just some people that will pretend that, not everyone who like idols, my wording is not clear. The general case is not much different from Justin Bieber (for exemple) fans in the West.
I am working in an Asian country and one of my female colleague is having this kind of idol relationship.

Musk Admits He Doesn't Fact-Check Himself and Has Two Burner Accounts on Twitter (www.rollingstone.com)

Elon Musk‘s erratic posting on X, formerly Twitter, has come back to haunt him once again as a 22-year-old Jewish man pursues a defamation case over tweets in which the tech mogul baselessly suggested the recent college graduate was an undercover federal agent posing as a neo-Nazi during a street fight between far-right...

That’s quite the opposite of the nuanced discussion I stupidly tried to have, but I guess your comment was not serious.

So why aren’t the other tens of thousands of people borned in comparable money not becoming as rich?

Yes, low cost compared to what NASA or Ariane, for exemple, had been doing until then.

Aren’t there thousands of rich born cunning “rats” that didn’t make as much?

Please refrain from personal attacks. I understand your point otherwise.
I’m not defending him, I even negatively criticized him two times in my initial comment. I’m defending having a rational opinion about him, but it’s very hard, as you can observe by your own reaction to my questioning.

My point is becoming that rich does mean some skills and cannot be achieved by a total idiot as stated in the top comment.

You are however, owed nothing, when it comes to civility.

Read the first rule of this community.

Although I don’t think I am owed it, I think it’s a pretty common minimal rule for discussion. So, if it’s not respected, I will just consider we cannot discuss and ignore you in the future.

One which you strain by repeatedly being contrarian to the point it’s either a sign of extreme neurodivergence (fine, my attitude isn’t normal either), or just disingenuous.

I either agree with you or I am neurodivergent/disingenuous/Musk? What kind of thoughts dictatorship is that?

If the former, do you have any actual doubts left as to why people feel this way?

I think I understand why they feel this way: it’s psychological more tolerable to demonize (or call a complete idiot in this case) someone you hate, especially when you are powerless against his misconducts such as destroying a valuable communication platform.
But I still think demonizing him now is as stupid as idolizing him a couple of years ago, which many people here did.
I prefer to fight the hate he uses for his personal marketing with rationality rather than more hate, I think this kind of person just feeds on your hate, even if it’s against him.

I think mostly communication, since his multiple frauds cases show he’s not actually good at business, and having some instinctive understanding of what he should say to appeal to the poor uneducated white people who are afraid of falling lower. I feel like in the case of Trump, it’s even more important to not use his populist and hate based tactics.

oce, (edited )
@oce@jlai.lu avatar

I don’t mind learning to go around whatever condition you may have, just let me know, so I can try to include it in my understanding of what you are saying.
My goal is not to be pedant, my goal is to trigger discussion where I feel there’s some room for progress, either mine or others’, and see if it happens.

Link it to the second part of my comment, it does sound like crazy to educated or non-indoctrinated people, but it worked incredibly well with his base, as well as almost half of voters. There some kind of skill there, how would you call it?

oce,
@oce@jlai.lu avatar

I would call it a combination of a very well-funded, well-crafted campaign, well-funded and well-crafted by people other than Donald Trump,

Any reputable sources about this point?

oce, (edited )
@oce@jlai.lu avatar

You’ve moved to points about flaunting, having an egocentric media presence, and the absence of personal engineering success. I think I agree with those, but those are different points. My point was about how he became that rich, compared to other people with similar parents money, if he is a complete idiot.

oce, (edited )
@oce@jlai.lu avatar

Not the funding, but rather that he is not the real leader of his campaigns and political objectives, as I think you imply there’s some people in the shadow using him as a front. I’m talking more than some influence or lobbies. I prefer to read reputable new sources about it.

@oce@jlai.lu avatar

without the need to have their face in the media constantly.

That’s still your point not mine, you’re arguing against a point I didn make. I even told you I agree with this one.

You’re using a straw man argument, I never said I consider him a business genius. Just reread what I said, there’s nothing else to over interpret about it to make it easier to shut down.

Interesting, did this kind of organization not happen before for other presidential candidates?

I made the effort to look up your reference, so I could understand what you said. Did you ever make such effort with mines?
Now instead of using those few lines to explain to me what I may have missed, you wrote those lines to attack me. I think you could have ended it before falling to such a low quality argumentative level.
